From Michelle Obama to Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, living healthy may be one of today’s hottest trends. Celebrities like these and millions of other Americans are enjoying the benefits of practicing a heart-healthy lifestyle. Find out why heart health is so “in style” (and how it can change your life).

The Benefits of Living a Heart-Healthy Lifestyle

Although it requires a bit of leg work, the benefits of healthy living are life-changing. During February’s American Heart Month, learn how you could benefit from making simple changes, such as eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly.

Feel Your Best

One of the most immediate benefits of practicing better heart health is the improvement in how you feel. When your heart is not working as well as it should, you may experience symptoms like fatigue and shortness of breath.

Live a Fuller Life

When you feel your best, you are better able to experience all that life has to offer. You have more energy to enjoy time with loved ones, and you will have more positive vibes to share.

Save Money

A heart-healthy lifestyle is also good for your wallet because you will likely spend less money on medications and visits to your local health center.

Protect Your Brain

Practicing heart health reduces your chances of having a stroke or experiencing cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.

Maintain a Vibrant Sex Life

Researchers have found that heart disease and its risk factors, such as obesity and high blood pressure, can hurt an individual’s sex life.

Live Longer

It’s important to remember during American Heart Month that heart disease is the number one cause of death in both men and women. Being mindful of heart health can lead to increased longevity.’
